Six Weeks!

I am ever so happy that we found Dorian and he has been with us this long. I've missed having a cat around. I'd forgotten just how soft they are. But this one is extra soft. Extra cute. Extra lovable. And all mine! He still follows he everywhere and yes, he still wants at least one bottle a day. But that's OK because he's letting me have more free time.
He weighed in this morning at 1 pound 13 3/4 ounces.
He graduated to a big boy litter box instead of a box flat.
He also just started eating a few crunchies along with his pre-moistened crunchies. Though he still doesn't have front teeth, just eye teeth and back molars.

I really am surprised at his fan base out there. I never thought I'd become a cat blogger but I've fallen in love with this bit of fluff, and so apparently have all of you. Thank you all for the interest and love. If only Dorian understood how lucky he is and how well loved he is.

Anyhow, lets talk about me now. I have another before and after shot. Just a small change. No more furniture, just a curtain. But I'm looking for another furniture update!
As you know I'm repainting my kitchen. Not an easy thing when your a hoarder! I've seriously have to much STUFF in my kitchen. Another good thing about painting is the pairing down and clearing away the spiderwebs. The next big job should be to get rid of the popcorn ceiling. Honestly, who thought it was a good idea to popcorn a kitchen ceiling?
I promise not to show you more pictures of my boring little kitchen but I wanted you to see my new theme better. I've had this fabulous toile fabric for awhile (thanks to cousin Linda) and I've just now gotten around to using it. I think it fits the era of this room much better. What do you think?

Oh and look at the new soap dish I made. Ain't it too cute! It fits right in to my Mason jar love.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Take care, Brandie

Love the toile - it can definitely help create a theme.

The new fabric in the kitchen is really nice. It reminds me of the Villeroy & Boch pattern, "Audun" that I used to sell.

By the way, if you are struggling with too much stuff and can't bear to get rid of things, I can highly recommend the book, "It's All Too Much" by Peter Walsh. I think he's been on Oprah a few times. He's great. Follow his advice, it really works!

Wow, Brandie!!!!!! It is looks so beautiful!! I saw an interior designer on TV once and she said, "Every room needs a dash of toile!" Looks like she was right!
